Readers of this blog,
Allow me to give a brief update on what the Lord is doing in my life and ministry. Your prayers would be much appreciated.
I believe God is leading me to look for a church in Texas to pastor in order to be closer to our extended family there. I have been struggling with this desire for several months and have prayed, cried, and sought wise counsel. This has been a struggle because I love Christ Baptist Church and have no desire to leave my church family here in Wilson. But, I believe it would honor the Lord and serve my wife, kids, and extended family to find a church to pastor in Texas.
So, along with my fellow-elders, I shared this with Christ Baptist last Sunday. I want them to know what God is doing and how He is leading so that they can support and pray for us through this process. I have no desire to do this in secret. I need the support of my church family as we trust the Lord to direct us to the church He desires us to serve. I am so grateful for an understanding and supportive church.
This process could take a year or more. We don't know. But, I'm committed to my calling at Christ Baptist until the Lord reassigns me to another post. I want to be faithful to the end.
So, please pray for us. Please pray that God would open doors and close doors as He sees fit. I'll keep you updated.
I thank God for you,
